Mass Euthanasia Of Dogs In Preparation For Hurricane Harvey Dogs

Hurricane Harvey is expected to make landfall and hard hit shelters have been ordered mass euthanasia of all homeless animals.

Rescue groups in affected are bracing themselves for the worst. While keeping themselves and their families safe, they are also expected an influx of displaced and critical animals.

Redemption Dogs is asking for the public to rally together to help the affected animals and the mass casualties of animals expected (on top of those that are being put to sleep as we type this).

We will be keeping this blog post live for the duration and aftermath of the hurricane. We will do our best to connect rescue and resources at this time.

    Im not a rescue organization however I’m in magnolia, tx. We live in a few acres. Our property did not hold water at all. I can help with fostering dogs in need. I’m familiar with helping stray, lost and abandoned animals.

    Many thanks for this list of shelters. I just donated $50 to each one listed.
    Thanks also for your updates. Hopefully we can avoid the 250K pets who died or lost in Katrina.
